    Unhappy Safari & iTunes always "unexpectedly quit" after software update
    I just did a software update to all the latest and greatest and it seems that now iTunes 9 and the new Safari do not want to stay open. Currently running OS X 10.4.11.

    I tested it under a new user account (not the admin account) and they both open and function under the new one?

    Here's what I've tried so far to remedy:
    Reinstalled Safari and iTunes
    "Reset" Safari
    Un-clicked "Enable Plug-Ins" on Safari
    Ran "Repair Permissions" on Disk Utility

    I can only think of re-installing my OS, but really do not want to since it's working under the other user account...

    Thanks!

    Try deleting the preference files.

    Users / your user / Library / Preferences

    com.apple.Safari.plist
    com.apple.iTunes.plist

    move them to the desktop

    log out and back in

    Here is the Intel combo update

    Bummer. I tried deleting these prefs:


    com.apple.Safari.plist
    com.apple.iTunes.plist


    And Safari is still giving me the below wacky message after the spinning beach ball of death. Apparently I am not able to post the code in b.c it is too long, aww shucks. To "The Mac Outlet" I fear I will be going this weekend...
